Thie monograph is an attempt to give a descriptive and historical account of the chief monuments in the group of buildings fond within the enclosure of the village of Nihimrid Din, as well as brief biographical notices of the saint and other important personages who lie buried there, and whose tombs have been noticed. It is difficult to relate the history of a saint without legends, and hare also a few of the legendary accounts, which testify to theMiraculous powers of the saint, have been narrated, but they have been confined to only those which are of a historical natnre and, in most cams, have been referred to in authentic historical records. Some of the authorities quoted here are quite ram, not noticed before m any of the publications dealing with the shrine of Shaikh Nizamu-d Din, and they throw additional light on its history.
My best thanks are due to Mr. J. A. Page, A.R.I.B.A., Superintendent, Muham-madan and British Monuments, Northern Circle, who kindly arranged to supply me with the plan end photographs. I should also acknowledge with thanks the valuable assietsuee of Maulvi Aehfeq Ali in collecting material for this monograph.
